New Mexico State University's First-Generation College Celebration
2020 First-Generation College Celebration
The New Mexico State University's (NMSU) First-Generation Celebration planning committee created and shared #FirstGenAggie virtual Zoom backgrounds for NMSU faculty, staff, alumni, and students to use as a way of showing first-gen pride. The committee was also able to deliver an outstanding, one-hour long forum centered around first-generation college students through a panel at the virtual NMSU campus-wide Town Hall event, which included a four-minute testimonial video filled with first-gen Aggies, their struggles, successes, and advice. The diverse panel consisted of first-gen faculty, administrators, students, alumni, and staff, which included NMSU's president. Check out the successful event here.
